A good spot to stay overnight between arriving on a late bus and going into the jungle. Breakfast was good. Rooms were clean. Shared shower needs a new tap - very hard to turn on and keep on.

Wrong room booked, wrong price at end, expected 20 more soles, only one working ice cold shower, cockroach in shower, breakfast was a bread roll, jam, tea and coffee, and eggs if you had the guts to ask her for them! Not what we expected for Lonely Planet's top rated hostel!
Average accommodation offering a very basic breakfast and standard jungle trips. Probably best of a bad bunch in the area.
I really, really loved this hostel. Keep in mind it is a HOSTEL. Some people have complained that many of the facilities are located outdoors-- this is a jungle town where open air facilities are common. I highly recommend the associated tour company-- Gerson gave us great advice and we had an amazing 4-day stay in Colpa Chuncho and Lago Sandoval in the the Tambopata Reserve. Cold water in the showers -- refreshing during the hot days but some might complain. Good wifi in the common areas.
Nice hostel providing great value for money tours into the jungle with a lovely guide. Better than average brekkie too.
Great location, right near the central plaza. The staff is very friendly, but limited with their English. The tours booked from the hostel are good quality, as are the ones booked with their partner company, EcoTime. The facilities are basic-ish (as you are in the jungle) -- cold water showers, mosquito nets, etc, but the hostel does everything possible to try to make you comfortable.
Loved everything about it! Great friendly helpful staff, really clean and great atmosphere also a really comfy bed! Thank you for everything!

We stayed for one night in a double bed private room. Bed was good, had a mosquito net but we didn't see any in our room so we didn't use it. No hot water in the shower, but it was so hot there that the cool shower was really nice anyways. Staff was great in helping plan stuff for us, including a traditional Amazonian dinner, a jungle trek and our bus to cusco. They even let us use an empty room and showers to clean up after our trek, even though we weren't staying there that night.
Very nice hostel considering the location. Cold showers but Puerto Maldonado is so warm it doesn't matter. Not as many mosquitoes as other people have said but I'm sure it depends on the season. Would 100% recommend booking a tour to Lake Sandoval through the hostel, very enthusiastic english speaking guides with a lot of knowledge (cheers Johnny!). 2d/1n costs around 115usd.
We stayed here just one night in between our jungle trip and heading back to Cusco. Decent enough hostel but Puerto Maldonado is just a town to stay in if you're passing through!
nice hostel, good breakfast, showers were warm, staff at the hostel also offered jungle tours so we did our through them to avoid hassle, was good value for money
Older crowd at this hostel. Kind of a sleepy town, but they offer very nice tours in the Amazon.
